    Super Secret Opinions

    The Super Secret Opinions radio show was great! I think their group did a great job replicating what a real radio show is like. They had a lot of good conversation about the secret agent theme and I like how they incorporated real life characters such as Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Gru, MIB Agents A&K, and James Bond. They did a great job describing each of the characters and their wardrobe. My favorite segment was when they talked about Gru. They discussed whether he was truly a secret agent and how fashionable he was. I think talking about Gru being a sercret agent is interesting because that isn’t his actual…

    RMP The Best Digital Tool

    For this 4.5-star assignment we were asked to find a cool, easy to use digital tool online. Then write up a brief tutorial on how to use it, and what it can be used for. For this assignment I chose RateMyProfessors! This is a very useful tool for university students. It allows students to look up potential professors to see how they might be good fit for specific classes. Essentially students go onto the website and rate professors and how their semester went. They include the specific class they took, sometimes what grade they received and some sort of description of how the semester went: were there any concerns, was…

    Happily Ever After

    See if you can figure out this story made out of gifs! This story may have been a difficult one to depict, mostly because this story is a twist to the original, Romeo and Juliet. This 3-star assignment was actually a lot of fun to make. I really enjoy assignments that are visual and have the flexibility to be creative. When I first came across this assignment I struggled with deicing which story I should re-create. I toggled with several stories such as Harry potter and Mr and Mrs Smith and then on eof my favorite songs from middle school came on, Love Story by Taylor Swift came on my…

    Girl Power – Progress/ Process #2

    Whew! Lets see how our project progressed over the past few weeks: Week before spring break: My group members and I were put into a group together and immediately began to brainstorm what our topic of interest would be through a GoogleDoc. From the beginning we knew we wanted the radio show to revolve around female secret agents, so we began to brainstorm what topics we could discuss within the female secret agent theme. Here are some of the original thoughts and ideas: In order to create a structured show we created a GoogleDoc to formulate our ideas. We began to design our first segment which was going to be…

    Annoying Sounds

    Check out my annoying sounds! This 1-star assignment was short but interesting. Mostly because I got to think about the most annoying sounds that bother me. I used FreeSounds.org to gather my annoying sounds. I used a baby crying, a squeeky noise, a bunch of birds chirping and a goose honk. I then placed them into GarageBand and mashed them all together….it sounds wonderful.. Then uploaded to Soundcloud! I would have to say this is the worst soundcloud upload ever!

    Girl Power Progress

    So far, so good! This week were able to come up with a majority of what we plan to do for the radio show. We decided on the name “Girl Power” because we want to bring more female secret agents to the spotlight. We hope to bring light to more female secret agents because there is a huge male stereotype around secret agents, for example, James Bond! We began brainstorming ideas for the show earlier this week using a GoogleDoc to form our ideas/posters/bumpers, etc. Our group consists of four members which means we each plan to talk for 5 minutes – for a total of 20-25 minutes. Throughout the…

    Radio Show Ad!

    Check out this radio show ad I created for our Radio Show, Girl Power! I had fun creating this poster for our radio show! I created it using a website called Canvas. It’s a pretty simple website to use, you pick out a background and from there you can add different texts or images that the website provides. The website has options for free objects and also pictures/background you can buy. I like this website because I am able to create nicer-looking photos than the apps I have been using on my phone. I tried to download a photoshop-ish app that was suggested but my computer was unable to download.…

    It’s a Beautiful Day

    …Don’t let it get away! For this 2-star assignment we used one favorite quote and recorded a sound that fits well with the quote. One of my favorite quotes went really well with my all-time favorite song, It’s a Beautiful Day by U2! This assignment was pretty easy to put together. Unfortunately the recording for the song did not record very well but I tried my best. I then used the voice memo app on my computer to record my voice saying “It’s a beautiful day, don’t let it get away”. This quote/song always put me into a good mood, it reminds me of being in the wonderful Florida weather!…

    Radio Show Story

    For this 3-star assignment I told a story of how our radio show was produced. This story was actually a lot of fun! I created this story by first coming up with sounds that I would use in the story and came up with a brief script- this took the longest. I used FreeSounds.org to get the sounds onto my computer. I then recorded the story using Voice Memos in segments so that I could add in sound effects within my story. After I saved the 10 pieces of sounds/recordings to my desktop, I then began to place them into Garageband in their correct order. I spliced some of the…
